Turns out beta testing is very fun.
Let’s start from the beginning…
Test Subject: Avocado Delight
Check out this slideshow to see the places we beta tested our coasters. Secondary results indicate that all restraurants were terrific! We highly recommend each of them if you visit Northern Michigan!
It was fun to see the reaction of our servers when they brought out our drinks- They universally noticed them and liked them!
In summary, the coasters were up for the thorough testing we gave them. They traveled well, supported our drinks well, got the right kind of attention and even survived a dip in a lake!
Test Subject 2: Alter Ego
I saw these icons on my brother and sister-in-law’s Netflix opening screen. Each person in the household had their own Netflix profile picture that they chose. I thought it would be fun for each person to be represented on a coaster so I made these as a birthday present for my wonderful sister-in-law.
Testers reported that the coasters were being used and holding up to the rigors of heavy drinking…no, I don’t think that is what was said. They work well.
Final results: Success!
(Also, testing indicates that I tend to order wine and my husband orders beer.)
